From serious intellectual endeavours, as the seat of an ancient university, to centuries of dominance by Venice; from the piety of St Anthony’s pilgrims, to the revolutionary art of Giotto and Mantegna – Padua has long been one of northern Italy’s most refined cities. It is also excellently placed for excursions into the green Euganean Hills, a temperate place of final refuge for Petrarch and centre of baroque garden design. And as the final port on the Brenta Canal, Padua is an ideal jumping-off point to explore the utilitarian but beautiful villas designed in the 16th century by Andrea Palladio.
